Wow, Summerland is awesome. I wasn't really into Summerland when it came out last summer but in late September/early October, I started getting into it and couldn't wait for it to come back on the air. Now that is has come back on the air, I have seen every show. The location where they shoot it, is such a beautiful place. The actors that star in this show are just so talented. We also never knew what was going to happen,whether it would be Johnny or Simon? Or what Nikki or Derrick or Bradin, what happened to them or what they were going through. I really encourage to watch a episode you will get hooked on it, that is what happened to me. You can catch it on the WB at 9pm,(chicago). Check it out! you will love it.
